As the Brexit negotiations struggle to make significant progress, this is a critical time to examine the potential risks to climate change and energy issues. In this month’s newsletter, we cover:
Brexit, Energy and Climate Policy: What is at stake for Europe - a new feature article outlining how a perfect storm of political chaos in the UK and complacency in the EU 27 Member States could harm climate and energy issues for both sides and undermine the Paris Agreement;
Catalysing Cooperation: Maintaining EU-UK cooperation on energy and climate change post Brexit - a new brief setting out benchmarks of success for energy and climate issues in the negotiations. Also showing how the establishment of a cooperation track can unlock progress;
The Withdrawal Bill and Environmental Law - a special guest blog from the UK Environmental Law Association (UKELA), who have been providing impartial technical analyses of the implications of Brexit for environmental law, on the proposed EU Withdrawal Bill (formerly the Great Repeal Bill) and their forthcoming research.
